70 years of laundry experience has led to the development of the world’s most advanced wash system, the Smart Drive®.
Unlike conventional machines, Smart Drive® autowashers use intelligence to adapt the wash action and water levels to save on water and electricity use; making it kinder on your wallet and the environment.
Intelligent Electronics
A powerful microprocessor controls every aspect of the Smart Drive®, allowing it to continually monitor and respond to each wash. It contains over 10,000 lines of instructions in its brain’ – the result of many years of testing and fine-tuning, to give you the best possible performance.
Direct Drive Motor
Our revolutionary direct drive motor is capable of infinite wash actions, continuously adjusting its speed to the movement of your clothes, removing dirt while caring for the fabric, delivering the ultimate wash.
Reliability
The Smart Drive® has no mechanical brake, pulleys or gears, which means fewer moving parts and greater reliability.
Saves Time
With a top spin speed of 1000rpm, Smart Drive® reduces clothes drying time by up to 30%.
Energy Conservation
The unique wash action means a typical load uses only the same amount of electricity as a 100-watt light bulb left on for an hour.
Eco
Designed to make every drop count, using up to 25% less water than the traditional Water Saver rinse.

Installation Instructions
Unpacking
To ensure the best performance from your new
Smart Drive® please follow the instructions below.
Removing the Packaging
1
Remove the outer packaging.
2
Tilt the machine backwards and walk it off the bottom
packer one foot at a time.
3
Remove the bottom packer from under the machine by
pulling it out the front.
4
Lift the lid and remove the bowl packer from the bowl.
5
Remove the hoses and accessories.
6
Keep the bottom packer and bowl packer in case they
are required for future transit.
Please ensure that the bottom packer has been removed before operating your machine.
In your autowasher you will find:
4 rubber inserts for the levelling feet (joined together).
1 hose guide.
2 inlet hoses.
Drain Hose
1
Carefully pull the drain hose out from the
back of the machine by pulling the exposed
part of the hose downward and outward.
2
To guide the drain hose over the tub or
standpipe the hose guide MUST be fitted to
the drain hose.
To prevent syphoning:
The drain hose should not extend more than
20mm from the end of the guide.
The height of the standpipe or tub should
be between 850–1200mm.
The drain hose can be trimmed to length.
3
Place the drain hose in the tub or standpipe.
4
Pull hose through guide
Flex hose guide apart
(20mm) maximum
Standpipe 850 – 1200mm
Installation Instructions
Inlet Hoses
1
Connect the straight ends of the inlet hoses to the taps. There are washers fitted in both ends.
2
Connect the elbow ends of the inlet hoses to the machine inlet
valves. Inlet valves are marked on the back of the machine
H=Hot C=Cold.
Cold supply only:
If you only have a cold water supply, an inlet valve cap (blanking cap) MUST be connected to the hot inlet valve. The cap prevents water leaking out of the hot valve. The cap is available from your Fisher & Paykel Dealer or Authorised Service Centre, Part No. 388491. This appliance incorporates backflow protection complying with AS3500.1. No further backflow protection is required for connection to the water supply.
Levelling
It is IMPORTANT to level the machine to ensure even spin performance.
1
Separate the 4 rubber foot inserts from the moulding and
fit into the feet on the base of the machine.
2
Move the machine to its final position. (We suggest a
minimum clearance of 20mm each side).
3
Adjust the feet so the machine is level and cannot rock.
To check if your machine is level:
Look down on the wash bowl and make sure it sits slightly forward of centre (see Diagram 1).
Close the lid. Visually check that the lid fits evenly on both sides. If it does not look like the
diagram in the middle, adjust one of the front feet slightly until it matches. The diagram on the top and bottom are not correct (see Diagram 2).

Installation Instructions
Water Supply
For best operating conditions your hot water
should be approximately 65˚C. Your cold water
should not exceed 35˚C or your hot water exceed
75˚C. Temperatures above these may cause the
machine to fault or cause damage to the machine.
If you have an uncontrolled water heating source
(eg a wet back or solar heating system) you should
fit a Safe Valve. This will ensure the hot water
temperature remains within safe limits.
Inlet water pressure: Max.1MPa (150 psi) Min. 34Pa (5 psi)
Inlet water flow rate: Min. 3 litres/min
Minimum height of taps to clear the top of the machine is 1150mm.
Draining
Regularly check that your standpipe or tub is free from lint or other obstructions, which may
affect how your machine works or may cause flooding.
In multi-storey apartments or any upper floor, the machine should be installed on a drained floor.
Draining must comply with local by-laws.

Your Smart Drive® can now be opened while it is filling and agitating, supervise young children
to ensure they do not play with it.

Thank you for buying a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive® washing machine. We are very proud of this washer and trust it will serve you well for many years.
At Fisher & Paykel we aim to provide innovative products that are simple to use, ergonomic and energy efficient. Thousands of tonnes of washing and 70 years of laundry experience have been programmed into your washing machine to help give you the best possible performance.
We hope you enjoy your new washing machine, we have certainly enjoyed designing it.
Before You Do Your First Wash
You owe it to yourself and your Smart Drive® to have it installed correctly by an authorised service agent.
Before you start, it is a good idea to go through the following checklist:
1
Has the basepacker been removed?
2
Is the hot hose connected to the hot valve marked ‘H’? Is the cold hose connected to the cold
valve marked ‘C’?
3
Is the drain hose threaded through the ‘U bend‘ (with no more than 20mm extended) and on to
your standpipe?
4
Are the rubber inserts secured into the feet on the base of your machine and is the machine
levelled?
Refer to Installation Instructions, page 4.
If you have bought a Pride model it is a good idea to check the warm fill temperature. (Refer to
page 26).

Using Your Excellence Washer
Remove fabric softener dispenser.
Place the load evenly around the agitator. (Refer to Sorting and Loading pages 21).

Lidlock
Your Smart Drive® has a lidlock, which locks when your
machine is spinning. This ensures the lid cannot be
opened during hazardous parts of the cycle, providing
added safety for you and your family.
The lidlock light (above the START/PAUSE button) comes
on when the lid is locked to tell you when you cannot
open the lid. In short it means you can open the lid
while your Smart Drive® is filling, agitating, and draining,
but not while it is spinning.
When the Lidlock light is on, the lid is locked.
When the Lidlock light is off, the lid is not locked and the lid can be opened.
If the Lidlock light is flashing the Lidlock is in process of locking or unlocking, (i.e. while the
machine coasts down or START/PAUSE has been pressed). During this stage the lid still cannot
be lifted.
If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock and the cycle will be halted. The machine will play a tune and the lidlock light will flash until the lid is closed and START/PAUSE is pressed.
The lidlock remains unlocked for the majority of the cycle allowing you to add clothes, dissolve
detergent or to add fabric softener (if you do not want to use the Automatic Fabric Softener
Dispenser).
The chart below shows the stages when the lid is locked.
Fill Unlocked
Agitate Unlocked
Spray Rinse Locked
Deep Rinse Unlocked
Spin Locked
Keep children away from the machine, especially when you are using hot water, as the lid can be
opened during fill and agitate.
DO NOT put anything down the slot in the top deck of your machine. DO NOT try to disable the lidlock.
